    Ryanair’s new cabin baggage policy – introduced in an effort to silence its critics - is causing problems, with a lack of space in overhead lockers forcing up to half of passengers to stow their luggage in the hold.

    The low-cost airline, until late last year, permitted passengers to carry on board just a single item of luggage. As part of its recent attempt to win over fliers, however, it now allows them to bring along a second smaller bag, measuring up to 35 x 20 x 20 cms.

    But the move means space inside overhead lockers is in greater demand, and only the first 90 passengers are guaranteed to have their luggage placed in the cabin. Ryanair’s 737s carry up to 189 people, meaning fewer than half are certain to travel with their bags.

    At first it sounds great in theory, but as always with Ryanair the reality is a little bit different.
